It was the intention of Grays Harbor County Emergency Management, Local Emergency Management Agencies throughout the 5 County Region and Washington State Emergency Management Division to allow the citizens to hear the actual siren wail. This would assist them in the future if a severe emergency should occur. Remember, the AHAB Sirens can be used for emergency situations other than a Tsunami. The capability is there to provide notification and voice messages for any type of severe weather or disaster situation.
Website visitors can hear the siren in the attached .mp3, just click on the story title above.
